We would be glad to list your statement next year :-)
With the Innovation-Challenge, we were able to implement jointly developed ideas in a very short time and generate from them a marketable product. For every start-up it is good to have decades of know-how that the experts have brought with them! For Skyability, it was a great way to advance practical development!
The cooperation with Wien Energie works very well. The Innovation-Challenge was organized wonderfully from start to finish! We recommend other startups to apply for the Innovation-Challenge because it allows them to use Wien Energie's broad market access to make their own technologies available to a large audience.
The Innovation-Challenge of Wien Energie is a great way to validate and test new business cases with experts in the industry. The challenge helps to set up close collaborations between startups and corporates.
The Innovation-Challenge of Wien Energie was a very important milestone in our corporate development. Through the close and efficient cooperation with the experts of Wien Energie we were able to develop our now very successful chat bot "BotTina" within a very short time – from prototypes to go-live.
The cooperation with Wien Energie was easy and uncomplicated for us. After our first conversation, we were able to start the project within a month. During development, experts from Wien Energie supported us in understanding their systems and data better. This close cooperation has enabled us to achieve exciting results within a month.

The acceleration phase will take place for 4 months. Start-ups don’t necessarily need to be in Vienna but should at least invest 2 days/week. The aim is to build a prototype and/or prepare the project for a successful cooperation/launch. Budget for first prototypes and pilot projects might be provided.
There will be meetings on your progress every two weeks – either remote or directly on-site.
